Christmas Party and meeting notice

Just a reminder, instead of a ‘regular business meeting’ the Rockwood Park Backyard Beekeepers Association will have its annual ChristmasParty this month! If you have not yet joined the club, this would be a great opportunity to do so and meet members in a fun social setting. Membership dues are $15 per family and are good for an entire year.

Date: Monday, December 14, 2015

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Rockwood Park Nature Center (classroom)

Activities: Food, music, bee products and Reindeer games


  • Food – Drinks will be provided, but please bring a side dish to share. Please no alcohol.
  • Bee Products: RPBBA members who have ‘Bee Products’ for Sale (cosmetics, soap, candles, etc.) are urged to bring their wares for display and sale. Help other members get some genuine, local beewares for stocking stuffers.
  • Reindeer games – some planned group activities for those who wish to participate, such as:
  • Christmas Sweater Contest; a panel of judges will award prizes for the most unique, interesting, and or tacky Christmas Sweater or T-Shirt
  • Two Truth & A Lie; members who participate tell the group two truths and a lie, then other members have to guess which is which.
  • Prize raffles
  • Yankee Swap Gift Exchange; member, who want to participate, must bring a wrapped ~$10 gift (no labels) and a fun time occurs when the gifts are swapped back and forth. Game rules can be found at:

So come and have a great holiday time….I hope to see everyone there.
